Everyone involved in our event enjoyed Manny as a performer AND as a person! Manny was flexible, cheerful and responsive to the guests in spite of extreme heat. Everyone was pleased and impressed with musical selections. If the evaluation had room for ratings ABOVE 5, we would surely give them. I highly recommend Mangroove without hesitation. They will make any event better!

Manny's Montage is amazing. We were very impressed with the selection of music which was perfect and their professionalism. The guests raved about how wonderfully they played and many inquired about them saying "they would like to use Manny's Montage for their next event." The guests of honor (my parents)LOVED the band and were extremely pleased. Thank you to Manny's Montage for their professionalism, patience and musical talent. They really made the evening special for my parent's 40th anniversary party.
